This museum never fails to bring a favorable response . The displays appeal to a variety of age levels. There are places for the adult chaperones to sit while the children explore in plain sight. We go often.

While in town visiting my oldest daughter, we decided to check this place out. It is a great experience. My youngest is 5 and is having a blast. At the moment she is a Veterinarian 😬.
